Got 7 hours in last night :P

Game's amazing so far. After 7 hours my completion rate is at 5% and I've only upgraded 2-3 items which speaks volumes to the amount of playtime and content this game has wrapped up in it. One criticism I read from other players (not reviews) was the map can become repetitive... While I can see some people would have that view in my opinion Kojima has gone more for depth and density as opposed to sheer scope. All the bases and outposts etc are meticulously designed to offer great stealth gameplay and I have no issue with replaying them over and over under different conditions/circumstances. I'm yet to see the African map but I assume it has the same attention to detail as the afghan one. All in all 0 complaints so far, loving it. Recommend.

I absolutely hated MGS4 which is why I had zero hype for MGS5. My friends are telling me that it is quite different though, it is a lot more gameplay and less story which I thought was the issue with 4 (less gameplay and way more story that I thought was shitty). Was a huge fan of the series from 1 to 3 though, think I might pick this up sooner than I was expecting to.. I can get it on PC for like $45 or so as well which helps.

 

I'm not sure if I can tear myself away from Rocket League though, I have 70+ hours in that now and I'm still not close to being bored. When I don't have any friends online I play alone in ranked 1v1 while listening to music, so easy to get sucked in for awhile. Rocket League is like crack

I never played any besides number 1 which I completed like 3-4 times. It was my favorite Ps1 game and then I picked up the twin snakes version on GameCube which was fiya!

But yeah this seems a lot different to what I've seen of 4... I never got 4 because I read about the 9 hours worth of cutscenes lol. But I think 4 was also pretty linear? 5 is full of possibility, you can approach every situation however you want. It's kind of like a mix between Far Cry 3 and the original splinter cell games. Stealth is my crack so maybe I'm a bit biased but I love getting perfect runs in stealth games, non-lethal, no detections etc and that alone gives this game infinite replay value for me haha.
